Mixing Gouramis - can you mix moonlight, pearl, dwarf, opaline etc. in the same tank?

does anyone know if you can mix the different gourami species

I think it would be really cool to have a gourami tank, with all the different species.

I had, 2 dwarf gouramis, 2 pearl gouramis and 2 kissing gouramis but I just got lucky!!! Basically... You'll have a biggest one which is a bully or worse, I was luck not to have any bullies. What size of tank do you have? If it was a 200 gal with lots of cover I might take the risk of 6 or 4, I done it in a 48 gal but as I said I got lucky. My two kissers only get nippy at feeding time but I don't mean taking chunks out of each other nippy.

IME I've kept DGs with gold gouramis, which are similar in tempermant to opalines, and they got along fine. They were all male gouramis too. The DG, pearl and moonlight are fine because of their mild tempermant and peaceful personalities. I'm just worried about the opaline.
